Why won’t you stay gone?

Why do you keep coming back

Only to leave all over again?



I believe you 

When you say you miss me 

I also believe 

All the silence 

that you throw my way 

It doesn’t make any noise 

But hits hard enough 

To leave a bruise for days 

I believe you 

When you say you’ve been hurt 

I also believe 

In that ache I feel 

When you refuse 

To acknowledge my hurting 

I believe it all 

The said 

The unsaid 

I just don’t know 

If I believe

in myself anymore 

To have the strength

To believe in us.
